Murkowski is 3rd GOP senator to back gay marriage

WASHINGTON — Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has endorsed gay marriage, becoming the third Republican to do so.

In a statement on her website, Murkowski said supporting same-sex marriage is consistent with her values as a “lifelong Republican” who believes in “promoting freedom and limiting the reach of government.”

“I support the right of all Americans to marry the person they love and choose because I believe doing so promotes both values: it keeps politicians out of the most private and personal aspects of people’s lives — while also encouraging more families to form and more adults to make a lifetime commitment to one another,” she said.
